Icey white with a blue/purple duochrome. Applies smoothly and lasts. Looks pretty as a highlighter and really compliments purple and blue shades.

Oh no. Just, no. I had no idea this was like a duochrome, vellux pearl sort of finish, not "frosty" which is the official finish. It does not look it in the pan. I should have read the MUA reviews first. I really, really don't like that type of e/s. It totally has the flash of blue-ish purple. Just awful on me. And I don't normally put too much stock in NYX's colour names, but they were right on the money on this one: picture an opal, and you have this e/s. It reminds me of really old fashioned, dated e/s from another era.

I adore this eyeshadow in the spring and summer. It's an ethereal sheer white shadow with a lavendar duochrome effect. I've been obsessed with anything opal since my teens, so I had to have this. I don't care how age-inaproppriate it becomes, I will wear this Opal shadow for the rest of my years :)

I'm so impressed with this product. I had been to every MAC counter in the area, searched eBay, google, everywhere to find MAC's Vellum, which is an icy white color with a blue/lavendar/periwinkle duochrome sheen. I read tons of reviews and luckily my MUA girls never fail to deliver. This is an identical product at a third of the cost. Looks absolutely gorgeous with purple eyeshadows, or alone with black liquid liner. I'm so happy to have found this and I would def repurchase again. If you're like me and usually only buy MAC eyeshadow, this was worth the risk.

This was really dusty. It was just 'ok' for me. Probably wouldnt buy it again as it was far to dusty and did not stay put.

This applied sheer but I could build up the color. It had that 'holographic' effect to it, which was kind of neat...not quite metallic, not quite irridescent. It's cool stuff. This came in a kit with a very wearable stone color and 'Luster,' an olive green.
It looks lovely on it's own, but my preference is to use it as a highlighter on brow bones and inner corners along with the other colors in the kit.

Lovely shadow! This is exactly like Mac's Frozen White pigment in my opinion. Opal is a highly pigmented white shade that flashes bluish lavendar. I use this with nearly all my lavendar/ purple & gray eyeshadows. Now that I've discovered this, I doubt I will ever buy Frozen White pigment again. Retails for $5.00 at NYXCosmetics.com

Gorgeous gorgeous. Scored this for $5.99 at the local SDM... wish they carried more MYX stuff. This shade is a frosty white with a bluish silver sheen (like MAC's Pink Opal pigment which is white and shines pink-gold). Other reviewers compared it to MAC Vellum, which I haven't tried.

Opal is a very nice off-white "opal" shade with iridescent lavender and blue shimmer. Soooo pretty! Great as a base and highlight shade, this looks hot paired with the 2 it comes with in the trio: Luster and Platinum Silver. As usual, NYX quality is exceptional for the price: pigmented, long-lasting, no creasing, soft texture. I love NYX!

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet. Opal is a dead-ringer for MAC's vellum...it's basically a white (but sheer enough to be used easily) color that flashes blue/lavender. Very pretty paired with either blues, grey, or black colors...I like this with MAC't tilt and Knight Divine. Useful color...and quite unique
